How Porcelain Tooth Crowns Work
Porcelain Tooth Crowns are popular for the following:
- Repairing your cracked or chipped tooth,
- Filling unsightly gaps and spaces between your teeth,
- Making your smile more even and uniform,
- Whitening your discolored or dull teeth.
Porcelain tooth crowns are made of a ceramic “cap” that fits over the top of your tooth to repair damage. These ceramic tooth crowns are custom-made in our dental lab to look like your natural teeth and cover and repair and protect the tooth from future damage. Your all-white tooth crowns will match the color of your existing teeth so your smile will not be tarnished by ugly metal dental work. Plus, you porcelain tooth crowns are non-toxic, strong, durable and can last for decades.
How Fixed Tooth Bridges Work
Dental Tooth Bridges are today’s most popular and affordable technique for “replacing a missing tooth” or many missing teeth in a row. A dental tooth bridge is a fixed (non-removable) porcelain appliance used to “close the gap” where your missing tooth is by adding a new porcelain tooth (or teeth) within the gap. The tooth bridge fits into the gap left by missing teeth and attaches with hidden clasps and/or tooth crowns fixed to your natural teeth on either side of the gap to hold them securely in place. A bridge is “permanent” and with care it should last for 10 or more years.
